Jahre später — Facetten der Nachhaltigkeitsvision und deren Umsetzungsproblematik

. Noch haben wir es in den Etagen der Wirtschaftsvertretungen vornehmlich mit dem Gedanken des „time-is-money” zu tun. Ein Wandel hin zur vielfach geforderten „time-is- life-quality” wird wohl noch einiges von unserer Zeit in Anspruch nehmen.

A Methodological Concept for Territorial Impact Assessment Applied to Three EU Environmental Policy Elements

of territorial cohesion they have to be divided into their main elements, described by policy aims and translated into qualitative indicators. The effects of a certain policy can then be described by qualitative indicators based on expert judgement. Territorial quality The main policy aim of territorial quality is to ensure a relative homogeneity of life standards at a sufficiently high level in a given territory and to avoid extreme segregation in metropolitan areas. This objective can be described by elements such as conservation and creative management

Inner-City Suburbanization – no Contradiction in Terms. Middle-Class Family Enclaves are Spreading in the Cities

) seminal theorization of suburbanism as a way of life. Drawing on Henri Lefebvre’s (1974) dialectical conceptualization of urbanism, Walks defines suburbanisms along several intersecting and conflicting dimensions that can be found in both urban and suburban locales. The second issue is then to sketch the essential qualities of newly built middle-class family enclaves and to high-light their propagation as a major characteristic of current urban development. Their continuing expansion will be interpreted as an expression and catalyst of ongoing processes of inner

Conceptualising Quality in Spatial Planning

planning processes to support societal learning so that many stakeholders and the public recognise that implementing a plan is in their individual interests in order to promote their own quality of life. And finally, in a law-driven system like in Austria, planners must assure that a plan conforms to the legal requirements. Therefore, I argue that conceptualising planning quality needs to address four dimensions (see Stöglehner 2017 ): content, planning methodology, planning process and legal compliance. 4.1 Content As laid out in the introductory section, the

internationalisation of these discussions, in order to overcome the limitations caused by "inside" perspectives that predetermine responses to identified problems. This especially concerns the discussion in countries which are undergoing dynamic transition processes across all spheres of social life, including the education of land use management professionals. Several papers deal with the topic of housing from different perspectives (e.g. Robert Dixon-Gough and Jozef Hernik; Emma Mulliner and Vida Maliene) which is relevant for international discussion especially in the context

period when there is felt to be a pressing need for a thorough rethinking of the aims and roles of spatial planning in its European dimensions, as well as in individual countries. Especially the question of finding the optimum balance between economic growth, equity, and environmental quality has become an urgent and increasingly difficult task. The first study, by Horst Zimmermann and entitled “What is a Leitbild ?”, is a systematic and thoughtful discussion of the roots of the term ‘ Leitbild ’, of the practical applications of the term, of modern manifestations

Resource Efficiency of Settlement Structures: Terms, Conceptual Implications and Connecting Factors to the Resilience Debate

of the various kinds of capital and resources must be adjusted to each other. Concerning this, however, still today there is already a lack of numerical data concerning the built environment as well as scientific basic knowledge which, in the context of resource efficiency, would allow both for a deeper analyses of life cycles and for impact assessments concerning ways of proceeding, technologies and possible scenarios. The following explanations are thus meant to provide conceptual orientation on the way towards an understanding of resource efficiency in a

satisfaction of stakeholders. Cook and Harrison (2015) argue, therefore, that it is not the shape, content or construction of values that are important, but the impacts which an intervention may have. Hence, values are determined by the results of public actions. The impacts of public social value can be socio-economic, related to quality of life, political or ideological. Hence, the way that interventions change issues such as community relationships, social mobility, future income, household security, political opportunities, moral beliefs and commitments is a
